505 Games announces partnership with Might & Magic and Tropico 6 studio Limbic

Digital Bros company 505 Games has revealed it will be publishing the next title from German developer Limbic Entertainment.

The firm says that it will be releasing a new online multiplayer survival game, with a new approach to emergent game world design and character progression.

“We are always on the lookout for new development partners who bring something unique to our diverse and indie-focused portfolio, and Limbic Entertainment’s new project does exactly that,” Tim Woodley, SVP of global brand and marketing said.

“The team at Limbic is pushing the limits of the online multiplayer survival genre, putting a fresh spin on an emergent game world and an innovative character progression, and we’re looking forward to having a part in bringing that to players around the world.”

Limbic CEO Stephan Winter added: “Our team is excited to dive into creating a new IP, and we are especially happy with the creative freedom in our cooperation with 505 Games. 505 is making a name for itself as a great publishing partner, and we knew right away they were the right company to embark on this project with us, as we move to defy the current limitations of the survival genre. We think players will really respond to this game, and we’re looking forward to sharing more details soon.”

Limbic is previously best known for its work with Ubisoft on the Might and Magic series, as well as developing Tropico 6 for Kalypso.
